Pelikan calls Maximus (580-662) ''bilingual,'' equally fluent in the language of theology and the language of spirituality, and goes on to say that ''people of faith will need to be bilingual in the years to come,'' cognizant, as we suppose, of the bankruptcy of the one language without the other. The opening selection in this volume, 'The Trial of Maximus,' informs us of the glory of his confession; the other selections include The Four Hundred Chapters on Love, the Commentary on the Our Father, Chapters on Knowledge, and The Church's Mystagogy. These texts are glorious! Introduction by Jaroslav Pelikan, preface by Irenee-Henri Dalmais.
